Fujita Gakuen and ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. established a joint venture and entered the real-world data business.
May 10, 2023
Rohto Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture; President: Masashi Sugimoto) is pleased to announce the establishment of a business company in collaboration with Fujita Innovation Capital Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujita Gakuen, a school corporation that manages universities and university hospitals (Toyoake City, Aichi Prefecture; Chairman: Kiyotaka Hoshinaga; hereinafter referred to as Fujita Gakuen). This new venture aims to promote the utilization of real-world data.
Real-world data encompasses healthcare information obtained from routine clinical practices, including prescription data, electronic medical records, health check data, and patient registry data. Rohto Pharmaceutical and Fujita Gakuen are committed to strict security measures and the protection of personal information. We both will engage in business activities that range from platform construction and service design to data analysis and development consulting. These efforts are geared towards the future implementation of society in the fields of health, medicine, and caregiving.
Our Vision for Establishment
Rohto Pharmaceutical has embraced the Group comprehensive management vision, "Connect for Well-being," for 2030. We are actively pursuing various initiatives in the fields of health, pre-illness, and treatment to ensure that each individual can lead a vibrant and fulfilling life both physically and mentally. Real-world data has gained significant attention in the healthcare sector in recent years and has already been widely used overseas for product and service development. Leveraging Japan's medical expertise and medical big data, we can conduct analyses using artificial intelligence (AI) that enable quicker and more efficient evaluations of safety and efficacy than traditional development processes. This shift in approach has the potential to revolutionize product development.
Rohto Pharmaceutical shares Fujita Gakuen's strong commitment to providing services not only to its own organization but also to many individuals in the healthcare field. This led to the establishment of the joint venture company. Going forward, we will swiftly build the necessary platforms to meet customer needs and contribute to the supply of beneficial technologies and products for society as a whole.
